    I've been able to get anyremote working on my Galaxy mini phone using Bluetooth, but would much prefer to connect via wifi.

    When I try to connect via wifi, it just sits there with the connecting icon whirling.

    I know that I can connect to my phone via wifi, as I have had success with other software (e.g. wifi keyboard, adbWireless).

    Any ideas?

    please make sure:
    - (on android side) IP address/port of PC is correct
    - (on PC side)   anyremote runned with "-s socket:XXXX" commandline option

    Also, You can try try to shutdown firewall

    Sorry to take so long to get back - I was monitoring another thread.

    Yes it worked! It was the firewall - can't imagine why I didn't try that before.

    Thanks so much for your help Mike. I hope this helps others as well.
